Symphony Arlington will shares its Young People’s Concert series with the students of Mansfield Independent School District at 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Nov. 2.
Symphony Arlington’s Young People’s Concerts series is part of an age-specific, arts integrated curriculum that aims to improve and add to the arts education programs of various school districts.
The project will culminate with a performance by Symphony Arlington for elementary school students in Mansfield ISD. According to a news release, The Young People’s Concert program aims to allow students to learn through creative discovery.
“The purpose of Symphony Arlington’s Young People’s Concerts are to educate, inspire, and entertain young students by acquainting them with the orchestra, introducing them to a live performance, as well as interest them in creating music and appreciating quality music throughout their lives,” the organization said in the release.
This year’s Young People’s Concert will feature a rendition of The Yellow Rose of Texas, F. von Suppe’s Morning, Noon and Night in Vienna, Johann Strauss I’s Radetzky March, W.C. Handy’s St. Louis Blues and Suite from Beauty and the Beast.
